9/24: MMMMM . . . Monday!

This week we have been thinking about apples! They are the perfect Fall treat, and we love to eat them plain or in a variety of dishes. Apples have endless ways of being prepared, but we love to include them in our desserts the most! Our recipe is not actually our own, but Martha Stewart's, with some modifications because I am one busy mama!

Baked Apple Oatmeal (see Martha Stewart's original Recipe HERE)
By: Martha Stewart (online) and modified by MamaBreak

  • Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 medium apples, skin peeled in a spiral

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. Stir together butter, brown sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon, ginger, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Scoop out the core of each apple with a melon baller, being careful not to go through the bottom (I actually do this with a Grapefruit spoon-- improvise if you do not have a melon baller!)
  4. Discard cores. 
  5. Fill each apple with oat mixture, dividing evenly. 
  6. Transfer apples to a 9-inch square baking dish. Add 1 cup water to the dish to cover bottoms of apples by about 1/2 inch. 
  7. Cover dish with aluminum foil. Bake until apples are soft but not mushy, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm.
The result is Martha Stewart DELICIOUS!
